St Kilda has been given a mini-boost after the AFL confirmed that Marvel Stadium’s roof will remain closed for all matches of the 2020 Season.
AFL General Manager of Football Operations Steve Hocking confirmed the decision with club football operations bosses in a video conference on Thursday night.
Prior to Round 1, the AFL made the call to have the roof open at all times, as per regulations set by the Federal Government due to COVID-19.
But the revised verdict – in line with easing restrictions – has been welcomed by the Saints.
It means that inclement weather won’t rain – literally and figuratively – on St Kilda’s speedy parade and give the red, white and black an added edge against their opposition.
